An appropriate supplement for Hayfever sufferers
Inflammite is a combination of ingredients put together to help the inflammatory processes in the body. Inflammation is the first response of the immune system to infection or irritation in the body’s effort to heal itself and is characterised by redness, heat, swelling and pain. Initially inflammation is beneficial, but sometimes inflammation creates more inflammation and can become chronic. Acute inflammation is essential for healing, starts rapidly and lasts about 5 days e.g. bronchitis. Chronic inflammation is generally detrimental to the body and can last months or years leading to rheumatoid arthritis, atherosclerosis and some cancers. This is often referred to as the deadly “silent “inflammation, where it may not cause pain but continues to create damage.
The inflammatory response involves the production of a number of chemical markers and mediators. Cells known as Mast cells initiate the mediators of the inflammatory response
When there is tissue injury and damage or a foreign invasion such as bacteria or virus, the body produces an inflammatory reaction to initiate repair and evict the invader!
How can we decrease silent and chronic inflammation in the body?
Basically it’s easy! Follow a Mediterranean style diet which includes fish, fruit, vegetables, nuts and olive oil, moderate exercise, eliminate stress, get enough sleep, normalise weight, cut out refined sugars and trans fats and don’t smoke! And this can all be supported by the nutritional supplements Inflammite and good Omega 3 oil.
Not only does Metabolics Inflammite contain well-known ingredients that contribute to the normal function of the immune system such as Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Vitamin D3 and Vitamin A in the form of Beta Carotene.
